Apple’s annual event where they announce the next iteration of the iPhones, Apple Watches, and sometimes other products is one of the most anticipated events of the year. So when will this years event be? Let’s take a look at what date it might be!
The Apple Special Events normally take place on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Going back to one of the most prevalent phones even today, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was announced on the 9th of September 2014 (which makes me feel incredibly old. Was it seriously five years ago??), which was a Tuesday. Moving on to 2015, Apple unveiled the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus on Wednesday, the 9th of September. Following this, in 2016, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were announced on Wednesday, the 7th of September. In 2017, the next generation of iPhones were announced on Tuesday, the 12th of September. Following this, the iPhone XS and iPhone XR were announced on Wednesday, the 12th of September.
So if we look at the pattern, this would lead us to believe it goes from Tuesday to Wednesday for 2 years followed by a Tuesday and then another Wednesday. So following this pattern, it would make sense for the next generation of iPhones and Apple Watches to be unveiled on Wednesday the 10th of September 2019. Normally preorders happen on the Friday of the announcement week, which would mean that the new product will go live for pre-ordering on Friday the 13th of September.
Of course, this is subject to change. Apple could change their schedule at literally any stage, so these dates and written in stone. Alternatively, the Special Event day could be Tuesday the 10th of September.
What do you think of these dates? Let us know in the comments below! I’m super excited this year for Apple’s Special Event. I don’t know what they’ll name the iPhones, though I really like the sound of ‘iPhone 11 Pro’. All of that it to be revealed, and I can’t wait!
